    I bought a heap of applicators at a farm sale, including a crovect gun. Most would have been freebies, and were still in their wrappings.

    They have lasted and lasted, apart from the metal vetrazine ones.

    Or west... I was given a “Fasinex optiline” commonly known as the zolvix gun, the stores had had it 2 years and failed to sell it and then I phoned up asking for a price on one.. first time I’ve been given a free gun in a long time!

    I’m sure they were Phillips with a metal fan? @livestock 1 ?

    I remember having 1 of the first vetrazin guns and the T-bar alone cost £37 :0

  7. Sometimes is good and useful to have a longer mark on them than the dye in the pouron anyway.

    Speaking of adding dye’s @Bury the Trash anyone ever added food colouring to clear wormer? A friend is using cydectin oral and was saying to me the other day about how much of a nuisance it is you can’t see if a lamb is done like when you can with yellow/orange wormers..
     
  9. No, but I dont see why it would hurt ....
    Could Try it but reds gonna make look a bit like they got a bit blood going on there :D

    Hi Neilo,

    Would you be able to say where you have been quoted this price? I'm looking to buy 4x 5l tubs of Clik but the farm marketplace was the cheapest I've found so far.

    I couldn't find the item on MVF which is unusual? On a similar topic, the bargain basement 10l tubs of Albex no longer seem to be sold by MVF, only piddly 2.5l tubs which work out a lot more.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest that, if you can see the colour of the wormer (or indeed any dye added) on the outside of the sheep, you’ve kinda missed the target and potentially under-dosed them.;)

    Seem to remember them telling us we should have a new nozzle for them each year too.



    Anyone got a price for Vetrazin this year? One rep offered it to me last year but it didn't seem enough saving. What happened to the idea that there would be cheap generic versions available when the license expired?

    But the nozzle on the gun has got to glide along the mouth and you get the odd spec on the gums - basically traces of residue that is on the outside of the nozzle from the previous sheep being dosed.
